Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The energy from fusion at the core of the Sun takes about a million years to propagate to the surface, meaning that although we could detect cessation of fusion in the core (via neutrinos), we could not observe any change in the Sun's light for about a million years.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): SPOILER: During the "space jump", one of the crew members freezes solid in a couple of minutes. Space is very cold, but objects in a vacuum cool down extremely slowly. The heat in the object has to go somewhere. On Earth, the heat would be transferred to the cold surroundings, such as the air, by contact. In a vacuum, there is nothing to transfer the heat to, so objects that are warm stay warm for a long time. This is the principle behind vacuum flasks. The only way a object in a perfect vacuum can cool down is by electromagnetic black-body radiation. A person would lose heat at about 1000 W in this situation, which is only about 7 times faster than they would radiate heat in a 68F room.
  • SPOILER: In some earlier versions of the screenplay, the Icarus ships used rotating sections to provide artificial gravity. This is not used in the finished movie, so people experience normal Earth gravity everywhere while aboard the ships (apart from a short moment in the Icarus II airlock before it is re-compressed). An early storyboard shows the crew boarding the stricken Icarus I and finding that the only gravity is "sideways", towards the bomb.
  • The name of physicist Robert Capa has been taken from photographer Robert Capa, made famous because of his legendary "Falling Soldier" photo, that depicted a falling soldier in the very moment of being killed by a bullet.
